Harvard University researchers report that the risk of a heart attack is five times higher than usual in the hour after smoking marijuana.
Smoking marijuana also weakens the immune system and raises the risk of lung infections.
Marijuana affects many skills required for safe driving: alertness, the ability to concentrate, coordination, and reaction time. These effects can last up to 24 hours after smoking marijuana. Marijuana use can make it difficult to judge distances and react to signals and signs on the road.

Abstinence is the surest way to prevent STD's. Experts hold that condoms are at best 85-95% effective. Condoms don't 100% protect you from herpes, warts, and HPV, cervical warts (HPV) related to cervical cancer. The surest way to avoid transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, including HPV, is to refrain from genital contact.
Herpes can easily be transferred to the genital area, from a partner who is giving oral sex and has a developing cold sore on his/her mouth. You can be shedding the cold sore (herpes type 1) virus a couple days before actually visualizing the sore.
STD's can be spread by having oral sex.

Many college students that leave home for the first time may experience various emotional problems.  Some may include homesickness, family problems back home, low self-esteem, a lack of self-confidence, general anxiety, problems concentrating, roommate or relationship problems and stress and depression due to academic and financial concerns.  There can be many other issues that students will experience and will need to get their problems resolved as early as possible.  The longer the problem goes unsolved or if not address at all, more serious mental health problems can develop that will interfere with the student’s ability to function academically and or socially.

Getting adjusted to college life is made smoother when there are positive and competent staff members available to offer guidance and support to students.  No student has to feel alone.  The professional counseling service is here and waiting to support you.

Counseling Services provides a “SAFE ZONE” for confidentiality, courtesy, respect, honesty and competency.
